Retail Stores

We offer a wide variety of wonderful handcrafted and Canadian made gifts. We also have one of the best selections of maps and books to complement your stay in the park. 100% of our profits from our retail stores are used to fund our educational programs and are reinvested into the national park.

Banff National Park receives four million visitors a year. To enable the Friends of Banff to achieve their vision of inspiring these visitors, the Friends of Banff rely on a variety of funding sources. With retail being the primary source, the Friends of Banff operate two outlets in Banff National Park.
